Educator and social science researcher Baugher (coeditor, Leading with Spirit, Presence, and Authenticity) distills caregiving practices to foster emotional and spiritual growth in the lives of individuals, organizations, and society. Using a holistic point of view, he delves into the postures of compassion and healing, citing the benefits of caring with a playful spirit and as a means toward achieving mindfulness.
VERDICT Baugher removes the drudgery from caregiving to offer readers greater goals on which to focus. Recommended for all caregivers and anyone about to enter that space.
